    I would never bother with a honeymoon registry.  I’d just cut you a cheque (like i always do without the additional hoops) and may write in the card “have a parasail on me” or something…

    actually, probably not even that. I’d just leave it up to you to spend however you see fit.

    Same as PP. I’d just write a check, a lot of the honeymoon fund websites charge a transaction fee, so why deal with that?

    I always give cash. I figure the bride and groom can do as they see fit with it. Makes everyone happier. =)

    I don’t have a ton of experience with honeymoon registries, but the question is assuming that I WOULD give to one, and if that’s the case, I’d buy a dinner or a bottle of wine or something to be sent to your room.

    I’d do something fun like snorkeling, scuba, birding trip, etc etc (depending on your locale of course)!

    I’m shocked that I am the only one who voted paying for a plane ticket. To me, this is the most practical & helpful so it would be the first thing I’d put money toward, unless the couple wanted money to scuba dive, and then I’d probably do with that because it’s such a cool experience.

    We did a honeymoon registry with Marriott. No fees. We selected a variety of gifts (couples massage, breakfast in bed, activity credit, a night’s booking, welcome cocktails etc) in a wide range of prices. Marriott tracks who buys what and also lets guests write in their own dollar amount if they prefer. they send you a gift card in the combined value to spend as you choose, for example the Marriott where we spent some of our honeymoon didn’t have a spa, so we had a five-star dinner one night instead of a massage. Only downside is that our guests outside the US couldn’t actually book on the Marriott site for some reason.
